    Hi,

    i just came up with an idea in my head.
    Why not "copy" your successfull blog to an other language. Im from Germany, so we could target Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

    If you are interested PM me and we split the future rev.

    If you don't like it, just tell me im stupid - but hey, im new to IM

    Greetings

    If the idea is to COPY successfull blog, than you dont need us, just find successfull blog out there and translate in your language and keep your revenue yourself, just dont use automatic translation.

    This can really be proved a great idea. the language barriers are huge obstacle for many people around the world.

    U can just pick up any successful blog in English, check if it already has a version in your language or not-then translate it, u don't actually need the blog owner with you to do that. But yes, ethically, it is good to have the blog owner with you.

    Why do you want to translate english blog to german language and not the other way around? Just translate some german blog to english, it is far more profitable.

    I mean there are so many successfull homepages / blogs / services in the us market.
    I'm looking for some one who want to expand his business to other countrys. It doesn't have to be a blog.
    I don't want to copy and paste without the owner, cause he has already the expertise and know about trial and error.

    many times when things are translated the meaning is lost and it does not make any sense.

    We translate a few postst of our Blog, its more work as you think.
    And when you source it out, its more work and also costs a lot of money, imho.

    It takes more than grammar checks. First people typically have the article re-written and then translated
    professionally from that point. It's going to cost you some $$ for the translation.

    Want to translate it on my own. But i see there or not many interested in this kind of business. So we don't need to talk about any kind of problems further.
    But thanks for the answers.
